Cast off

The 6th of February. The day I never thought would come!
I’ve had my cast removed , no longer made of Plaster Of Paris and therefore patients are no longer given a piece of paper on arrival at the clinic saying ‘ Pop Off ‘ which used to cause great consternation. It’s made of some sort of resin stuff which is less messy and lighter. It still has to be removed with this fiendishly noisy and terrifying looking vibrating saw.
I can now start mobilising and taking more weight. Should be able to drive in a week or so.
Circumference of right calf 39 cms, circumference of left calf 36.5 cms.
It appears I have some work to do!
